1. Text Antakshri

This game is usually fun to be played in groups, and those who are shy in singing can also take part comfortably. Plus, it’ll also help you expand your music playlist.

Just saying, it’s fun to troll your friends by copying and acting like them.

The options could either be celebs, actors, athletes, or any famous person for that matter. Play with your creativity, add twists, and explore your friend’s love interests.

5. Truth and Dare

Do you miss playing truth and dare with your friends? Well, while spinning bottles on the floor with your loved ones is incomparable, playing the game on WhatsApp can still be a fun experience.

It can be played either in groups or individually with a person, say your crush. So, get ready with quirky questions you always wanted to ask them, but wait- don’t go too far. You can also give dares, but that would require photographic proof to know that the task was completed.
